ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
 

This workshop will be useful for brushing up on one, two, and three-point perspective, and on how that understanding of perspective affects your creative decisions. We will go through some exercises to review your understanding of perspective, then expand on that to see how changing that perspective adds dynamism or calm to a painting or drawing. We will also do a review on shadow and shadow angles.

 

Bio: I grew up in Austin, Texas. I was steeped in art through my mother who was a professional artist. She encouraged me and my sisters to take art classes; she took us to museums and galleries; and my sisters and I were occasional models for her paintings. However, my professional background is in architecture. From 1980 to 1988 I had a company wherein I bought, renovated, and managed the rental of residential and commercial buildings in Austin, Texas. I received a Master’s in Architecture in 1986 from the University of Texas. I moved to Gainesville in 1990 with my husband and our two young kids. I did freelance architectural drawings for various projects while raising our kids and doing a lot of volunteer work. Once our kids took off for college, I began painting in earnest (around 2008). I took art lessons to wean myself from the architectural tools for drawing and design. It is with this architectural background that I can share with artists for a deeper understanding of structuring your work.
